Ascent Trip Report

Started out on North Elbert TH at 4am, arrived at summit about an hour after sunrise (second person on summit that day). A few lingering snow fields above 12000ft but trail was in good shape and easily followed using my headlamp. Glad I started early because it was crowded on the descent, I stopped counting after fifty people.
